Many followers of the royal family have been wondering if Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and their two kids – Archie and Lili, will ever return to the United Kingdom. Things have become sourer between the Sussex pair and the other members of the royal family since the infamous “Megxit” in March 2020.
However, recent reports are suggesting that Prince Harry is considering returning to the U.K, especially after Queen Elizabeth’s secret trip to the hospital several days ago. Keep on reading to know more details.
Is Prince Harry Returning To The U.K. Amid Queen Elizabeth’s Health Issues?
Professor Vernon Bognador, as per Express UK, claimed that Prince Harry may be forced to return to Britain as Queen Elizabeth allegedly passes out more duties to the other members of the royal family. The British constitution expert said that senior members of the blue-blooded brood could step in to take on more responsibilities.
Vernon told The Guardian:
"Obviously, as the Queen gets older, more duties will be devolved upon other members of the Royal Family. The other royals can do anything except the constitutional functions, such as audiences with the Prime Minister and signing acts of Parliament."

However, it was clarified that Prince Harry or any of the Counselors of State are still banned from appointing a new Prime Minister or dissolving the Parliament since only Queen Elizabeth can do that. However, the husband of Meghan Markle may be asked to attend council meetings, sign routine documents, and approve credentials of new ambassadors to the United Kingdom.
To recall, Prince Harry decided to ditch the royal life and moved to the United States with Meghan Markle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to step back from royal life to stay away from the public eye and have a private life.
Prince Harry has yet to comment on Professor Bognador’s statements. While many supporters of the dad of two want to see him back in Britain, other reports claimed that it is unlikely for the Sussex family to spend Christmas with Queen Elizabeth and the other members of the royal family, especially with the current restrictions and numerous issues hounding the palace.
Prince Harry Demanded To Cancel His Netflix Deal
Meanwhile, royal biographer Angela Levin said Prince Harry should “tear up” his Netflix deal and “make a stand for his mother” over the controversial portrayal of the late Princess of Wales. She told The Sun:
“Harry has remained absolutely silent about Netflix. He should tear the deal up and make a stand for his mother. What's more important? Money or defending his mum? It's astonishing he can't find his voice on this.”
Royal expert Penny Juror said that The Crown stuck up “two fingers” at the royal family when it tapped the stepdaughter of IRA supporter Roy Greenslade to portray Countess Mountbatten in the series. She furthered that another actress should have been considered to play the said role due to its sensitive nature, even if Natascha McElhone was not responsible for the “sins of her stepfather.”
The controversial Netflix series was plagued with several criticisms over their portrayal of Princess Diana, portrayed by Elizabeth Debicki, on her final years. Majesty Magazine editor Ingrid Seward told The Sun:
“I don't think Harry gets it. I presume when he did the deal with Netflix, he didn't think it through — but Meghan would have, she's not an idiot. 'He talked about The Crown during his bus interview with James Corden, so he's not totally oblivious.”
Most, if not all, fans can recall that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a deal with the American online streaming service giant last year for their new production company. The Sussex pair is expected to produce children’s programs, scripted shows, feature films, and documentaries.
